Wednesday: 60 minutes at 175W

Tuesday:  I had to work through exercise time yesterday morning to prep a presentation for a meeting later in the day.  I hoped to sneak off to the gym between meetings during the day, but everything ran long.  so it was a Bonus Rest Day!  I didn’t need any more rest.

Wednesday:  Still dealing with high workload, but I managed to plow through it in time to squeeze 60 minutes on the erg.  I decided to no “waste” any of it as rest time, so I just rowed straight through.

Good session.  I was bumping up against my moveable cap.  The rule I’m using is:

  • 145 or under during the first 20 minutes
  • 150 or under for 20-40 minutes
  • 155 or under beyond 40 minutes

I was fine through about 30 minutes, then I needed to slow down to stay legal.  At 40 minutes, with another 5 beats to play with, I went back to 175W, and then slowed again after 5 minutes or so.  I decided to reward myself for being such a good boy by allowing me to make up the lost wattage in the last minute.


Tomorrow:  3 x 20 or 4 x 20 depending on how much time I have.
